The 8th IEEE RAS/EMBS International Conference on

Biomedical Robotics
& Biomechatronics



The eighth IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics – BioRob2020 – is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation – RAS – and Engineering in Medicine and Biology – EMBS.

BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a “biomechatronic” point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave, and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many different applications; and to develop novel nano-, micro-, and macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation, and personal assistance.

Major Conference Themes

The technical program of IEEE BioRob2020 will include invited talks, contributed paper sessions, workshops and tutorials, contributed posters, late breaking results poster sessions, continuing medical credits (CME), exhibitions, and more.

Papers can cover areas of Biorobotics and Biomechatronics, including:

  • Robotics and Rehabilitation
  • Biologically Inspired Robotics
  • Robotic Surgery
  • Human Machine Interaction
  • Wearable Technologies
  • Brain Machine Interface
  • Robotics in Ageing
  • Robotic Companions and Home Care
  • Human Augmentation
  • Micro Robotics
  • Nano Robotics
